All was fine with my 4k+, I was using a universal remote. I had to re-boot a few times and now although the original is fine my it will note respond to my universal. The USB dongle is in, and the IR eye is as well.
I wondered if the remote setting under my OSMV had been lost, so I checked in an ealier log I posted and I read this as XBOX 360, which sort of rings a bell, but having set it to that in my OSMC still no joy. It might be a fault but as it followed a reboot I doubt that, any clever ideas ?
Odd, removed all connections, few re-boots put connections back and all seems well, still I will keep the original remote to hand for now, just incase, as it was put away in the box.
